Gr 6 Up—This pocket-size illustrated guide takes preconceived notions of the Illuminati, paired with historical facts about Adam Weishaupt, the founder of the group; the Freemasons; and modern-day pop culture—and turns it on its head. While extremely informative, Keenan's sarcasm and skepticism isn't missed and it leads to a quick and fun read about a group that has baffled even advanced historians. This guide is jam-packed with information, and bright colorful artwork and witty captions make it appealing to readers looking for a few quick pieces of information. This is a fresh pick for students who would otherwise be deterred by denser histories. It concludes with a section that encourages young people to read carefully, to fact-check news, media sources, and copyright information, and to use common sense while researching—all completely in line with what school librarians are teaching daily.
VERDICT Recommended for purchase in larger libraries where students casually read nonfiction or where librarians have success hand-selling titles.
